Re: california beadlockers?
Please let me know when you find a company that makes a 16.5 beadlock rim-I could never one and went ahead a bought the "TireLoc" bead lock system. I like these but they are not without some drawbacks. They are street legal and lock both inside and outside beads but you better make sure the inside of your tires are smooth on the side wall, or you'll get tiny holes in the innertubes. I have some stock 16.5 rims and they have a hell of a safety bead but they are a little narrow for 15-19.5 wide tires-I do use one for my 44 spare and I can't hardy get it off the rim.
